Eurasian perch (Perca fluviatilis)

Perch are carnivorous fish most commonly found in small ponds, lakes, streams, or rivers. These fish feed on smaller fish, shellfish, or insect larvae, but can be caught with nearly any bait. They commonly spawn during the spring, when the females lay strings of eggs in covered areas such as near branches or underwater plants. Perch have a wide distribution throughout the world.

Hungarian pond production is one of our three implementation cases with the full range of associated processes including model development, forecasting, risk analysis, MP development and DSS implementation. For this case ClimeFish will focus of the effects of climatic factors and events on the yields of carp, pike-perch and catfish.
